You and your bride’s wedding day is a very special occasion. There are many things that you have to consider, plan, and make decisions about. The choice to either rent or buy your tuxedo for your wedding day is one of the many choices you will have to make. To rent or buy, how do you decide?
To make the decision on whether you should either buy or rent your tux for your wedding there are some things that you need to consider. Once you do the decision will be much easier to make. Here are the things that you should keep in mind.
How often are you going to wear the tuxedo?
This is probably the most important factor on whether or not you should buy or rent your tuxedo. Think about how much use you will get out of the tuxedo whether you are the groom or just in the wedding party. Most likely you will not be using a tuxedo a whole lot, so renting is the best choice.
Since this will most likely be a one time renting get the entire set-up; the bow tie, cummerbund, shirt, pants, jacket and shoes. It is approximately $90 which is much cheaper than buying an actual tuxedo even when you rent every single accessory that comes with it.
Another really important thing to keep in mind is that if you decide to buy a tuxedo, you have to think about the chances of you being the exact same size a few years after the event. Renting is your best option because as you wear your tuxedo years later it will need to be altered and that cost money.
Buying a tuxedo after you have lost weight means you will need to lose the weight first then purchase the tuxedo so that it actually fits you.
Consider these things
Those men that are into formal wear and high end fashion would benefit from actually buying the tuxedo. For those obsessed with fashion buying the tuxedo will be like investing in a piece of art, you will have this elegant suit to do with it as you please.
Owning your own tuxedo means having a high quality suit that far surpasses the look of those in other rental stores. The highest grade of wool must be bought to ensure you have the most luxurious tuxedo you can afford. Some choose to buy the main tuxedo parts such as the pants, shirt and jacket and just renting the rest.
